Leaving winter with the Recon

With paddling season over for most, at least those of us who live in colder winter climates like myself, I thought I'd take a moment to reflect on the my first few days back in my boat during spring 2012.

The Folly of Reaching for Perfect

I have been out teaching a lot lately and sometimes ideas crop up for articles, I was sitting in an eddy recently and giving some feedback and it surprises me the pressure paddlers will put on themselves to strive for perfection.

Michele Ramazza winner of the Extreme Sport Week downhill

Voss (Norway), Friday July 1st 2011



Brandsethelva is a narrow river with crystal clear, blue water. The 500 meter long section where the competition took place holds many good spots for spectators to see fascinating and technical moves in the water.

The river is characterised by being narrow and steep, which makes it a technically challenging river and very spectacular. The water flows has been high all week and all the athlets couldn't paddle the race course…

Viva Mexico !

School's out! Finally, after 11 long semesters of studying excessively, I had all the time to realize this long-cherished wish of mine and go on a proper trip with my kayak. The plan: 5 months of travelling in North, Middle and South America - always in search of the most beautiful pieces of whitewater on the planet. After spending fall 2010 in the Southeast of the USA, playboating all over the place and successfully racing on Russel Fork and Green, the…

Colorado Winter Update

After unfortunate cancelling trip to Mexico for kayaking and keeping the ticket for this year, our plan B was for some reason Colorado right away. Beautiful mountains, good lifestyle, friendly people and a lot of snow. I totally loved Colorado and its lifestyle anytime I was here kayaking so it was probably time to check what is going on here in winter. I know its unusual for a whitewater athlete to post pictures from ski&snb sessions but thats whats going on…

Endless River Adventures Blog on Project X - Confessions of a Closet Playboater



About the time that I finally figured out how to get past the third end in a cartwheel, the word on the river was that “cartwheels are out, loops and ariels are in.” Wouldn’t you know once again I would be a move behind when it comes to playboating. But in my quest to figure out cartwheels I had fallen in love with the EZG—partly because I could do flat water cartwheels in it, but also because stability is high on my priority list when it comes… Continue

Little Girl, Big Boat Syndrome

Photo Copyright: Robin Carleton



Why are there so many people out there paddling boats that are "too big for them"?



I'm 120 lbs, 5'5, paddle a Diesel 80, and absolutely LOVE it. It drives a line, boofs like a dream, resurfaces in little to no time at all, and carries speed amazingly well. I couldn't imagine a better creeker.



According to the "weight range," I should be paddling a Diesel 70. So why… Continue
